    Help for a beginning quilter!

    I''ve stumbled on this fun site while searching desperately for some help with my beginning quilting attempts. Hopefully you ladies can lend a hand!

    I''ve been quilting for a maybe a year. I barely sewed before that. I''ve made a pillow, a baby quilt, and a table runner. Actually, I''m finishing the table runner now, and am just *not* happy with how it came out! My corners never match, my batting always gets bumpy -- I can''t even seem to rotary cut straight. There aren''t any quilting classes around that are available to me, but I like the looks of the Quilt University website I found. Only problem is the beginners class doesn''t start until mid-September. So until then, I want to use my extra summer time to practice as much as I can.

    Maybe there''s a great book out there for beginning quilters (I have a Quilting 101 book and a book by Carol Doak that I use right now) that I don''t know about -- or maybe one for sewers, because really that would be just as helpful. Or maybe another online resource that could give me tips/lessons to try out. I love new projects, but in general just feel very inept, especially when it comes to anything that needs to be straight!

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    You can try to find "how to videos" on the web. I've made a baby quilt following instructions of free instruction videos on the web. Sadly I can not remember the website...

    good luck!
